“The Supreme Court decision is a victory for the pro-life movement and the volunteers who have supported mothers and children for the past 50 years,” Senator Blackburn said. ““Pro-life supporters come together from different states, religions, professions, and backgrounds to fight for the lives of the unborn. I look forward to empowering the work of these volunteers as they fearlessly continue to defend the right to life. †
Pro-Life Volunteers Stand Up to Protect Life
“In the wake of the Supreme Court decision in Roe v. Wade, millions of volunteers, non-partisan organizations, and lawmakers came together with a voice to champion the rights of the unborn, who are the most vulnerable among us… These supporters of the pro-life movement come from different backgrounds, with the common goal of building a society that celebrates, protects, and nurtures life at all stages… The pro-life movement has worked tirelessly for the past five decades for the legally unsound and destructive ruling in Roe v. Wade and to ensure that the human dignity of every person is protected by law, regardless of age, background, or creed… The work of the pro-life movement has been more than simply pleading in the Supreme Court to overthrow Roe v. Wade and often happens behind the scenes, with little acknowledgment of the time and talent that countless individuals have instilled invested in efforts to protect life,” the resolution said.

Supreme Court decision empowers states to fulfill their duties.
“The Supreme Court decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization does not prohibit abortion but recognizes that under the constitutional system of the United States, the power and duty to decide whether to allow or restrict abortion rests with the United States. States, not unelected federal judges… As the late Judge Scalia acknowledged three decades ago in his dissenting opinion in Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pennsylvania v. Casey, 505 US 833 (1992), “the permissibility of abortion, and its limitations, are solved like the most important questions in our democracy: by citizens trying to convince each other and then vote.”… The Supreme Court decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization brings the issue of abortion back to the United States, for the people of each state to debate and then vote,” the resolution said.
Roe v. Wade was blatant judicial activism.
“The decision of the Supreme Court of the United States (referred to in this preamble as the ‘Supreme Court’) in Roe v. Wade, 410 US 113 (1973), was a blatant act of judicial activism that invented a constitutional right to prevent abortion from all over the world. substance, without foundation in the text of the United States Constitution… More than 63,000,000 babies have been aborted in the United States since the Supreme Court decision in Roe v. Wade… The decision in Roe v. Wade has wreaked havoc on the democratic system of the United States by preventing American citizens from making decisions about the legality of abortion and instead putting those decisions in the hands of unelected federal judges,” the resolution reads.
